Pet project: upcycling for pets

Are you a cat or a dog person? I am siding with the hipsters and are firmly on the cat side. Although I love all animals to be honest but happen to have the loveliest cat in the world called Mouse. Have a look at these very quirky and fun upcycling projects for your pets, whether they be cats or dogs!

This is a great idea for older dogs with back problems. I’m not quite sure how I feel about the lovely chairs that are now dog bowls. Maybe it’s because I’ve always had ones exactly like these around my dining room table. Still it’s a new way of thinking so let’s celebrate that! buzzfeed.com

I’m definitely going to pimp Mouse’s pad with a few of these ideas. Hope you do the same and share them with us!

Happy styling,
